There is absolutely no question that when it comes to making sure that your wedding day goes off without a hitch, a coordinator is necessary. The level of stress that you’ll experience when something goes wrong on your big day is too much to do anything else but. And, in addition to all this extra worrying at a time when you are supposed to be your happiest self, you may not always have the answers required to put out fires that decide to conveniently pop up on your wedding day.
As such, it’s always best to have a professional oversee everything during your wedding, and let them and their many years of experience deal with any issues that arise.
But then the question becomes, how can you find a good coordinator? It goes without saying that you can’t just hire anyone for the job. So where would you find the right individual who is fit to single-handedly make sure that your wedding goes off without a hitch?
In this blog, we are going to talk about venue coordinators, and help you decide between hiring your venue’s specialist, or going out to find your own.
Pros of Working with a Venue’s Wedding Coordinators
Most wedding venues advertise their coordinators as one of their biggest selling points, so surely there have to be quite a few advantages that are associated with working with these individuals.
Well, to answer this question, we are going to start by telling you one of the biggest benefits you’ll experience if you decide to work with a venue’s on sight coordinator.
A venue’s coordinator will have intimate knowledge of the venue that you’ll find invaluable. They’ll know all the best locations for your wedding photos, and will be able to help you find the perfect table arrangement format to match your guest list, because of their knowledge of the space.
In addition, you’ll also find that venue coordinators will typically have extensive knowledge about local suppliers for food, furniture, flowers, or anything else that you might need. And their connections with said suppliers are sure to be an invaluable asset when it comes to getting you good deals.
Cons of Working with a Venue’s Wedding Coordinators
Be that as it may, the biggest disadvantage you may experience when working with a venue’s coordinator is that they tend to be less creative. Because they’re tied down to one venue and have probably hosted tons of weddings, it’s rare to find a venue coordinator who’s willing to push past their regular job.
As such, you may find that your wedding day will end up being an almost picture-perfect carbon copy of another couple’s wedding.
However, not all wedding venue coordinators are this unimaginative. At Clarence House, we’ve hired a team of only the best. Our Coordinators are boundary pushers who constantly work to improve, and who’ll dedicate themselves to making your wedding uniquely beautiful.
